    22 November 1963. 51 years ago. Do you remember where you were and what you were doing that day? I was in phys ed class and had just finished running the cross country course. As I walked up the locker room door, Coach Waite was sitting on the steps with his face in his hands. He was crying. I asked what was wrong and he told me that President Kennedy had been shot and killed. That was a bad day for me.

    Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy has temporarily blocked an appeals court ruling that declared gay marriage legal in Idaho and Nevada. The order came minutes after Idaho on Wednesday filed an emergency request for an immediate stay. The state's request said that without a stay, state and county officials would have been required to begin issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples at 10 a.m. EDT. Kennedy's order requested a response from the plaintiffs involved in Idaho's gay marriage lawsuit by the end of day Thursday.

I’m not particularly fond of the argument that I’ve heard many pro-lifers use: “Abortion is wrong because of all the amazing people we’ve aborted. One of them could have had the cure to cancer!” Abortion is fundamentally wrong because it ends the life of a developing human being, whether that human being would turn out to be a drug addict or the president of the United States....

    The report on Fox News that Sergeant Bergdahl at one point during his captivity declared himself a mujahid, or warrior for Islam, and may even have been allowed to carry a weapon puts at a premium an understanding of treason. Sergeant Bergdahl hasnt been accused of treason and would be considered innocent until proven otherwise. The burden is always and only on the accusers. But all the more reason to understand what treason is and why it is so special under American law. Treason is the only crime the Constitution pre-empts Congress from defining.

By formally declaring anyone opposed to same-sex marriage an enemy of human decency, the majority arms well every challenger to a state law...

Kennedy hugged and clasped hands with her lawyers as a six-person jury cleared her of driving while impaired, a misdemeanor. It had carried the potential for up to a year in jail, though that would be unlikely for a first-time offender.

    This just struck me like a bolt of lightning--if Oswald had more patience and was willing to wait about ten years he would have seen his dream come true of a Marxists state in the United States. The assasination was not even necessary to bring about the Marxist government that Oswald wanted. If Oswald were living today he would be holding pro-Obama signs and quite pleased with the direction this country is going in. The Marxists took over the Democrat Party in the seventies and today most Democrat voters don't even seem to be the wiser. They wept at Kennedy's...

    **SNIP** The brouhaha started when Kennedy, whos president of the Robert F. Kennedy Center, blasted out a holiday card with an image of her family, a biblical quote and Merry Christmas. Even though the recipients were bccd, thanks to a tech glitch, anyone who responded by hitting Reply All sent their message plus e-mail address to Kennedys full distribution list. **SNIP** But as an unending stream of trite responses clogged inboxes, a war of words broke out. Please remove me from mass e-mails to Kerry in reply to her christmas card, snapped activist Valerie Sklarevsky. Please REMOVE ME FROM YOUR...

    Caroline Kennedy is a long way from Syracuse. The soft-spoken presidential scion, who four years ago this month toured upstate New York in a short and ill-fated bid for the U.S. Senate, has swept with force into her newest public role as President Barack Obamas ambassador in Japan. And if the iconic daughter of American political royalty showed herself to be deeply uncomfortable as a glad-handing pol, shes on her way to becoming something of a rock star in the more dignified world of diplomacy. She has been swarmed by well-wishers in her public appearances, including Japanese men and women...

    To prove the liberal media never, ever stops promoting the Kennedy “dynasty” ad infinitum, the December 16 edition of people magazine highlights this story in the table of contents: “JFK’s only grandson, Jack Kennedy Schlossberg, steps up to carry the family torch.” He’s only 20 and going to Yale. The headline is "HEIR TO CAMELOT." Next to his picture on page 92 is the caption “A HUNK LIKE HIS UNCLE: Schlossberg has JFK Jr. infatuation potential – and more. ‘He will be a major figure of his generation,’ predicts Kennedy family biographer Laurence Leamer.” It's hard to tell if this...

    The new U.S. ambassador to Japan has weighed in on escalating tensions between China and Japan over the East China Sea. On Wednesday, Caroline Kennedy criticized China's recent move to create its own Air Defense Identification Zone (ADIZ), which requires that all aircraft notify Chinese authorities before entering the airspace. "Unilateral actions like those taken by China with their announcement of an East China Sea Air-to-Sea Identification Zone undermines security and constitutes an attempt to change the status quo in the East China Sea. This only serves to increase tension in the region," the ambassador said. The new ADIZ includes...

    MOSCOW AND BOSTON Lee Harvey Oswalds Russian was still shaky in 1961, when he was working as a factory metalworker in the provincial Soviet city of Minsk. It fell to a young student engineer named Stanislav Shushkevich to help him out. "He was a simple martinet, and I found nothing in common with him. His Russian at that point was passable. We had about a dozen lessons in all, after that we had no contacts, Mr.Shushkevich told the Monitor in an interview. My main concern later on was that he would be given the task of fabricating equipment I...

    What Shall I Tell My Grandchildren By Norma Zager Second Star to the right and straight on till morning Directions to Neverland The anniversary of President Kennedys death forced me into a state of nostalgic self-examination and unanswered questions including one in particular; what shall I teach my grandchildren? It is indeed a conundrum to have reached a certain age and still be in search of an identity. Or perhaps be overwhelmed by the profusion of identities embraced then discarded throughout ones lifetime. At this stage, I am left with the ultimate question plaguing me in my grandmother years; who...

    Berkeley Plantation Web Site ^ | 2013 | H. Graham Woodlief
    In 1963 President Kennedy recognized Berkeley Plantation as the site of the first official Thanksgiving when the small ship the Margaret landed at Harrison Landing on the James River (upstream from Jamestown) in 1619, carrying 38 men after a perilous journey from England. The small group of carefully chosen craftsmen immediately marked their arrival on Dec. 4, 1619 with an act of Thanksgiving, led by their Captain, John Woodlief. They fell on their knees on the riverbank, and Captain Woodlief ordained that this day should be commemeorated annually as a day of Prayer and Thanksgiving. This was not Captain Woodlief's...
